Two big question marks for the Philadelphia Union entering Round 1 of the MLS Playoffs on Tuesday might not be questions, after all.

Head coach Jim Curtin said Monday that Andre Blake is back to full training and will be available to play tomorrow night.

“We’ll still see how he responds to today’s training session but he’s ready to go,” Curtin said.

Jamiro Monteiro passed Covid-19 testing protocols and isn’t subject to a quarantine period after returning from his national team because he took a charter flight. Olivier Mbaizo, however, is quarantining after an issue with his green card that forced him to fly back on a commercial airline, Curtin said.

Jack de Vries is in concussion protocol but he’s the only other player Curtin expects to be unavailable for their sixth meeting with the New England Revolution.

“Pretty much our full group, and our full group that’s playing well and I thought had a good couple weeks of training but now the real test starts and the real season starts in the playoffs,” Curtin said.

The game is scheduled for 8 p.m. and will be broadcast live on ESPN.
